discovery method understanding
« on: February 13, 2010, 08:49:09 AM »
hi,
if discovery process find a switch port with more than 24 mac it's an uplink , you say...
so what's happen then ? nothing is writin in the DB ?
I use only static link (nedi.pl -L to leave them untouch) and no cli just snmp classic
command ; switch are Nortel.

thanks in advance.
Cris

It was used for assigning nodes to ports. I dropped it with the whole MAC based topology stuff though. Define static links for best results...

i'm sorry but i'm not sure i understand (whole mac based topology stuff).
my issue is nodes are detected on uplink and not on the right port. So i
have an uplink with 350 nodes (when population is check).
you said : "it was used for assigning nodes to port" ; do you mean we can't find
no more nodes on our networks ? it was the original plan of Nedi ? isn't it ?

I meant, I gave up on using MAC tables for topology calculation. Node mapping is still a key feature here. Looking at the code, I probably should factor in static links (which to my surprise) I don't  :-\

Do you see any comment (from nedi) on the uplink interface? (e.g. in Dev Status)

i dont' see any comment...
when i comment the device (where uplink is) in seedlist, nodes are detected on another uplink from another device. i use nedi 1.0.4.
when nedi find 100 nodes on an interface what does it do ?
Example :
First device in seedlist : nedi find nodes to my pc on port 23
Second device in seedlist : nedi find same nodes (my pc) on uplink port with 100 other nodes ?
what happens ?

maybe it helps to me to find a way to solve my issue ?
thanks ricky
